Has anybody reading this blog ever worked for the M.O.D from 1970 - 1974? I am particularly intereted in employees that were trained in computing at the M.O.D.
I am desperately seeking a LADYBIRD book that was privately printed for the M.O.D - it was called 'The Computer'. This private edition was limited to 80 - 100 copies and was printed without the usual Ladybird copyright information, and was produced in plain boards. The plain printing style of these 80 editions was at the request of the M.O.D., as they did not want their trainee staff to know that they were learning from a Ladybird book.
The problem is that nobody has ever seen a copy and I have personally been looking for 9 years - this is the amount of time I have been researching the Ladybird company - please visit my Ladybird website to read more in depth about the M.O.D special edition :
If anyone can help me find a copy of this book then there is £200 reward - any info regarding it would be most appreciated - it's the last puzzle in my Ladybird jigsaw! Once I find it I can lay my Ladybird research to rest and move onto other areas within books.
Thanks in advance for any help,
